er at a great men's meeting which the

en' up from year to •year-'tn filling en- 
gagements of long standing. He is

The Y. M. C. A. is keeping up its 
record in introducing to the city of

speakers of the country. The speaker 
of last Sunday's meeting, Dr; E. 
Zombie Smith, brought -one of the 
strongest messages that had ever been 
heard in tbo city of St.' Louis. Not 
only was the message of that mectiog 
a strong bno," but the meeting in 
every particular was a success. The 
gift of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Malone, of 
*2,000.00 on their pledge of tS,000.00 
set a now record in giving, tor it is 
the first, time in the history of the 
world .when ?j,000.10 bad been con- 
tributed' to the cause -of the Young 
Men's Christian , Association by a Col- 
ored man ot woman. 
. Added to the inspiration that came 
from the gift was/the fact that a doz- 
en or. more men banded themselves to- 
gether to sec that 15,000.00 was added 
to the fund by May 1 and thus reach 
the fS&OOO mark which is tbe half

their apportionment and it looks like

nro 



White people who have bought more 
than one thousand lota in old Slnloeb 
Park have been paying the earns prleee 
lie same terms as the Colored poo 
ply who have bought in South Eialoah 
Park. If there is any difference, the 
Colored people hare been getting the 
beat of it, because- Booth Slaloeh Park 
Is nearer the city and- has better street 
ear ssrvioe. 

Tba good Colored people of Bontb 
Kinlonh Park hav* built thamsalTa* a 
little Otty of whieh. they have a right 
to be proud. 

More than a hundred homes, three 
cl:urehes, and a splaudid publlo sehcol 
hare been built in tho last few yuara. 

And now we have something new 
that is going to. mean a bigger and bat- 
ter South Kinloch Park. 

We bare been able to induce a num- 
ber of white people of good standing 
to coaae In with us and eo-operata with 
us — to hslp with their money, their In- 
fluence and their good will to make 
South Kinloeh Park a bigger and bet 
ter place for the self-respecting Negro 



to lire and make his home. 

Wi have given these people a big 
share of Our profits in order to (ret/ 
their help, because we believe it is for 
the benefit of everybody concerned. 

We have always been ready to' give 
land to the churches at a nominal price 
— beoause we believed they .would help 
South Kinloeh Park. 

We have always been randy to' give 
land to aebools aad public institutions 
at a nominal' priee— because wo believed 
they would help South Kinloeh Park. 

And new wa are giving land to a cer- 
tain number of white people of good 
standing at a nominal priee lieesuae 
we believe their money, their icfluenss 
and their good will are going to help 
South Kinloeh Park. 

If you have any friends .who bava

UNION MEMOSIAL 



TUESDAY'S VICTORY. * 
V»Wel], the election is over and the result is' as we predicted. 
. The re-election of Mayor Kiel, more than demonstrates the fact 
that the citizens of St. Louis believe in giving honor to whom hon- 
or is due, 

The Argua took the responsibility of advising Negro voters to 
support Mayor Kiel and the Republican ticket, assuring thtm that 
they would make no mistake. Mayor Kiel has done much for St. 
Louis and has shown at all times that he desired to better the con- 
dition of all citizens regardless.of race, color or creed; 

We again take the responsibility of predicting that the mayor 
will, during his second term of office, do more than has' been done 
in the past to see that Negro citizens, are given their just share of 
recognition in all of the municipal departments. 

The Argus takes pleasure in congratulating Mayor Kiel and 
the newly elected Board of Alderman upon the splendid majority 
at Tuesday's election and we assure the Mayor and the Republican 
Administration that our resources will ever be at their command' 
for a better St. Louis ana! a better citizenship for all citizens re- 
gardless nf race. 



A TIMELY WARNING. 

Dr. John A. Simon knew whereof he spoke, whence said "that 
one of the most serious blunders that the democrats made, was the 
■injection of the issue of Americanism into the mayoralty fight" 

The St. Louis Republic in a news article of the 4th inst, pur- 
ports that Germans are plotting to stir lip the Negroes of North 
Carolina and align them against America with the promise of 
equality with the whites in the south if they will join with Ger- 
many, in a war with this country. / 

The overwhelming defeat of the democratic ticket at the poll, 
luesday, should be a sinister warning to the democrats, that the 
the time ts waning when the god of prejudice can be made to serve 
the purpose of man, 

Negro** of America do not have to be cajoled into joinihng wit*> 
any foreign country in order to get^what rightfully belongs to 
them; they do not intend to commit a single disloyal act against 
America, but history shows that the time will come when every 
race of people who are oppressed, will rise up and demand justice 
from its oppressors. American Negroes wili.also demand justice 
not by t he sward, nor by the shedding of blood,- but by appealing 
to fair minded men of the type of Abraham Lincoln; men who'Wil) 
see to it that every man who claims allegiance to America, and 
who is loyal in time-6f war.ahaH.be given the rights of an Ameri: 
can in time of peace. >- • ■ * 

BOLTERS AND CALAMITY HOWLERS. ' _'. ' 

What will the bolters and calamity howler* say now' The 
spectacle of a few "chronic dissatiafactionists," aided and abetted 
by a few paltry dollars trying to induce intelligent and law-abiding 
-citizens to vote against their own interests of the race were so 
ludicrous that it hardly justifies comment. We rather look with 
pity upon the poor misguided human Vho is always busy digging 
his own grave. - ■'■»««*» 



A RIDDLE 
An amusing incident of last Tuesday was the sight of a "coal 
man trying to 'fill up " ■ Kre(iri fi e |oa""with democratic bunk 
which had been cast on" by "more?' than 600 iron men in order 
,to defeat the Republicans or "cheat em" Neither I"Syd nor" 
Tom as' ' Weavers- could,help but aafc "Watts" theSmatttr with 
trie man. * * * 



*' Harmony in the Democratic band was rudely jarred, when 

it was found that the Cornet was not Simon pare. " 



. News dispatches to daily papers; claim that 'the Germans 

are trying tomcite thelNegroea to join them in an uprising against 
tbtvwhitea. What wp would like to know is this; If the Ger- 
mans are not white then wboia white?

Poultry raising Is no industry wblcb 
needs special attention. It should be 
taken up as a business and -managed 
us a business and time and effort put 
Into It, 

Eggs of Inferior market quality, at 
to atze, ahape and color, should not be 
used for hatching becfloae the pullets 
hatcbed from them may' lay the same 
kind of eggs. ' 

No fiusloesa pays better than poul-. 
try raising In proportion to the money 
Invested. The poultry Industry of 
Soutli Dakota nearly equals In value 
that of dairy products. 

The poultry raiser should stick to 
one particular breed and make n spe- 
cialty of that breed. There la no best 
breed. The' best hyeed Is the breed 
v.'hidi one likes best. 

If ■ hen has to alt on a cold roost all 
night, with all the warmth she gets 
drnwn front within, she will not be 
likely to lay the neit day. 

Watch the water supply and see 
that the hens drink only pure witter, 
and that they get plenty.of It also that 
they get it In clean vessels.

1 LESSO N FOR A PRIL 8 

JKSUS RAISED ■ LAZARUS PROM 

- THI DEAD— EASTER LESSON. 

Lisbon TEXT-joim iiar-tv u. m. 

ffiHd IT to M>. 

GOLDEN TKT-Jbim Ml tinto h«r. 
I wn On Munetln, end ths Hrs—Joha 
1138. TTS 

This lesson occurred shoot .two 
month* before tbo cruclUxIon, Jeqw 
belDg fn Befhabtr* at the tlmo of toll 
call (See John 10:40; 1:28). There 
■n four recorded cases of rerarrec- 
tion from, the dead: Jains' daughter 
(Matt. 9), the ton of the widow of 
Hein (Lake 7), Lninrns, and bum Je- 
na after his crucIOxiou (John 20). 

I. The Lateen of Unbelief. Bethany, 
the home of Lazarus, la on the soath- 
•astsjrn elope of ML Olivet, two miles 
from Jerusalem, Christ dad bin dls- 
dplet were on the east aide of the Jor- 
dan, having been driven there by the 
hostility of the Jew h (John 10:31). He 
purposely delays his stay In that since 
that thla event might (Its an Oppor- 
tunity for 'the nianirettallon of his* 
wonderworking power. This delay 
was in fsce of his supernatural knowl- 
edge that Lnsarns' sickness bad bees 
fatal, for he said plainly to hi s disci- 
ples,' "Lassrns is dead." Philosophers 
have often colled detth a sleep, but al- 
ways one from which there wss no 
■wakening ; heuce the skepticism of 
these .slBtera le not surprising. (1) 
They limited the power of Jesus to his 
person— "If thou hadst been here." (2) 
They also limited his power to a cer- 
tain place, "If then hadst been here" 
(v. 21)* \ ■ 

II. The Lesson of Pain. The suffer- 
ing of these sisters produced sacrifice 
and self-devotion. Suffering brings 
blessing to others. It is slso it mesne 
Of self-culture. Suffering drives til to 
the Christ, and reveals to n ; the un- 
realized side of Quiet's character 
(v. 20). Jesus Is often never mors 
kind than nheh he seems to be least- 
kind. In the midst of ber skepti- 
cism end pal n Jesus gave Martha a 
new aud glorious thought about the 
resurrection, "I am the resurrection 
and the life." If we desire that all 

we bars to do Is to get Jesus himself 
(I John 0:12). BesoiTectlon has to. 
do with the body, and life ban to do 
with the spirit, (John 17:8). All will 
ultimately experience resurrection, but 
only* those who belief e on bint re- 
ceive life (John 8;S8). There, is a 
resurrection of life and there is a 
resurrection of dammit Eon (John 
E:29). . Martha answered. "Kesi Lord, 
I believe that thon art the Christ, the 
Bon of God." It IS 'ell-important that 
we should really believe that (John 
20:31; [John 5:1-5). 
- III. The Lseaon of Love, Love 'al- 
ways manifests Itself In deeds. Mar- 
tha secretly and qnlchly arose and 
left the walling friends to ' go and 
meet the waiting Master. . "The Mas- 
ter Is corae." He Still comes, and 
calls to ns. and. If, like Martha, we 
spring np Kindly to meet him, he will 
SU our Uvea wltn blesalng'and Joy. Je- 
na came, to these sisters individu- 
ally (tt. 21, 28). He bad entered the 
danger sone ' in order to be then 
(r. 8), and it' was Thomas, the 
doubter, who wanted to accompany 
him (v. 10). "Jesns wept," not with 
the walling- of professional mourners, 

- bnt with the silent, grief -stricken sis- 
ters. 

IV. The- Lesson of Power. Jesus 
bid let natural causes work to their 
fullest extent Coming to the tomb, 
Jesus, said (v. .30), "Take, ye away 
the stone." It was -four days after the 
death of Latarns before' he came 
forth. Jesus" was soon to die and 
rise In three dayt after his entomb- 
ment. The stone had to be removed 
from the' tomb of Laxsrns; it rolled 
Itself away from the tomb of Christ. 
Ihe restrictions which Christ pieced 
upon, his exercise of power, viz.. thst 
lie sllowed Lazarus to die, to be 
burled.' and his body to reach the 

- point of putrefaction, and, not to come 
Forth until Jesus himself. In hit body, 
ml present st the tomb, emphasises 
the lesson of the restraint, of power 
Tor the. glory of Qod, Out of such 
•xtreme circumstances of seeming ltn- 
;oBSlblttty "Qod manifested his glory 
(Bom. 8:28).

[The Nemesis 
of Sin 



By REV. W. W. KETC1TTJM 
PtMtiMl sTarfc Com, 




that oar earthly existence Is only te 
poruy, that our real extsrs»»c* 



Israel stood on 

the east. bank of 
the Jordan ready 
to. cross over Into 
the promised 
fluid. The request 
made by these 
two tribes was 
that they might 
be permitted to 
find a home for 
themselves on the 
east' bank of the 
Jor dan where 
the fertile plains 
offered nbnndant 
pasture for their 
sheep and cattle. 
They promised 
Moses that their fighting men would 
cross with the rest of the tribes and 
help them drive the enemy oat of the 
laud. Upon this condition Mooes grant- 
ed their request andsnld, "If you fall to 
keep your promise to help conquer the 
land, be sure your- sla will find you 
ODL" 

These words spoken by Moses so 
long ago are true In all generations. 
"Will Find You Out.'' 
Note, these words do not sty, your 
sin will be found out, though thst is 
true. What they say Is, your tin will 
find you ont. That, you see, la quite a 
different thing. Something, I fear, 
most people do not take inlrf consid- 
eration. They are fearful their sin 
will he found out and so they try to 
conceal it. But bury sin, never so 
deep, there will come a time when It 
will be uncovered, for "the Lord will 
bring to light the hidden things of 
darkness and .will make manifest the 
counsels of the hearts.'.' (I Cor. 4 :S.) 

Some seem to think they Can lose 
their sin down through the years; thsf 
the lapse <if time will annihilate It; -hut 
there is arj ever-present tenne to sin 
niid IffcTwnys keeps pace with the 
years. A man's hnlr may have turned 
gray, Ms form become bent, and his 
step tottering, but the. sins of his youth 
have not been lo'at. They still dog his 
steps,' for as echo follows soog. so sin 
trails on! on ! oo I 

Neither con_sln be left behind by 
changing one's' dwelling place.- Mnny 
a man has tried It bnt never yet has 
anyone succeeded. Though be has put 
fiiousnnds of miles and oceans wide be- 
tween him and his nln, he has never 
gotten -away from it, for like Rnnnnns' 
ghost, .It cannot be left behind. When 
least he expects It, It gibbers at biro ; 
then thinking to escape it, he turns an- 
other way when lol'lt greets him there. 
Sow snd Ye Must Reap. a, 

i It Is also n law of Dature and so a 
lew j>f Cod,.- that whatsoever a mnn 
soweth that Shall he also reap. He 
may think he Is cunning enough lo es- 
cape the consequences of hiS sin, Just 
is the criminal thinks when he com- 
mits his crime, "oitnera may be cnujrht. 
bat not T." O foolish msn/f deceive 
not thyself. As thou dost eanr, so Shalt 
thou reap. 'A day of reckoning: is ahead 
and thou shalt not then escape the 
Judgment of God for, "Some men's sins 
are open beforehand, going before to 
Judgment : and' some men they follow 
after." (I Tim. B:2-L> 

But even now our sins And us out- 
Memory, that plastic piece of wna 
upon which everything Is recorded, and 
from which nothing can be erased, 
brings "befiire OS Our sin, and con- 
science, which Ihe Greeks called the 
whisper 'of GoJI down the ainles of a 
man's soui. soys. "^Thou art- the mini," 
'Herod, lold. of the mighty works ot 
Jesus. cried lo alarm as memory, and 
oonseleuei' did ihelr "'"'% "Tt \? ^fm

he tremlilVrl with fear. NbtUng pierces 



* ...Deadly- Virus of Sin. 

Wnltini: down onr streets ere many 

who by iln'lr halting steps and pullld 
countenances verify the text. . Fair 
onfce was the. body God gave them, 
sweet and el»nn. but atflft The deadly 
vrrus of sin bos (inured '''" foulness 
through the blood and now they are 
wrecks pjiyslcally. Sin has found them 
out In'thi-lr bodies, which God intend- 
ed not for sin. hut for temples of the 
Holy Spirit. ..-.".* * ' * 

Bnt bod bs It is to see a body wrecked 
by sin. Infinitely sadder Is tt to see a 
ruined soul. For sin sends Its deadly 
virus deeper than the body. It -sends 
It inlo one's moraUbetng. There hvthe 
place where sin finds one out. Con- 
science and memory may fall 'to do 
their work now, and. perchance the 

' body may escape thp dejllement of sin. 

| hot not.so Ihe onnj. Sin there Is inex- 

Jiunceohle. it' ngskea us what we are. 
t has wrought. death within, mil p- 
lees we avail ourselves of the grace 
of God. we shall 'because of It die eter- 

I wily. 

| But God has a wsy of escape ; It Is 
, through bis son Jesns Christ upon 
I whom he laid the iniquity of ns all. He 

Is the only way, "for there Is none 
| other name under he»veo given among 
I men, whereby we must be saved." 

(Acts 4:12.) How then .thai I, we escape 
; being found out by our sin if we neg- 
i lect so great a salvation which God' by 

hit grace has provided* 1
